Wedding Photographer Tankersley Manor | Laura and Robert

It's been a while since we were wedding photographers at Tankersley Manor, but it was great to work there again and especially as we were sharing Laura and Rob's lovely autumn wedding.  We were so lucky as the weather turned from a beautiful autumn day on the Saturday to a freezing cold winter one on the Sunday.  

Our coverage began with Laura at home and when we arrived her hair was done and she was in the make-up chair.  This is perfect when it comes to capturing the bride getting ready and means that Janet can begin taking make-up pictures whilst Alex sets to work photographing the most important dress in the world, perfume, jewellery and shoes, which, in Laura's case were pretty spectacular!  It also means that very often we can capture some nice shots as the bride has her dress fastened before we have to leave to meet the boys.

Arriving at Tankersley Manor to glorious sunshine, we met up with Rob, who, just like Laura, was brilliant to work with.  Both families made us feel really welcome and very much a part of this special day.

Laura arrived with her proud dad and we got some lovely images as Laura and Rob made their marriage vows, thanks to the registrars who, although space in the room was tight, didn't mind us standing close to them during the proceedings.  

With the big group shot and confetti done within a few minutes and everyone who was needed for the smaller groups working so well with us that we flew through them, we were left with plenty of time for couple photographs before the wedding breakfast.  Laura and Rob's photographs were so important to them that they shelved the receiving line to free up more time for their pictures together as, with shorter daylight hours, we had a lot to fit in before everyone sat for dinner.  

We knew that as well as the traditional photographs, they wanted some fun photos and some arty ones too.  As professional and creative West Yorkshire wedding photographers, we loved working with them as they were very enthusiastic about giving our ideas a try, including a couple of images to show off those shoes and Laura was a natural when it came to striking a pose!

Once dinner and speeches were over, we set up our video light and off camera flash for some night pictures before the evening party started.  Our sincere thanks to Mr and Mrs Spicer for allowing to capture your big day.  It was perfect from start to finish and we hope you love your images.
